Do you have a talent, hobby, or interest you'd like to share with children?

The Family Student Housing School Age Program is looking for people to volunteer to do a short (20-minute) presentation one day during the summer. How about music? Candle making? Astronomy? Bird watching? Life cycles? The sky is the limit here. The children are smart and fairly good listeners. Hands-on activities to accompany the presentations are especially appreciated. If you have an acquaintance who might be interested, let us know , and we'll follow up with them. For more information or to schedule a talk, call (831) 459-4085 or e-mail gbloebaum@housing.ucsc.edu.
